Hello everyone , i have been thinking of getting an Android for quite some time , but decided to wait till June for all the new phones to release. I will be buying a phone at the end of the next month. My budget is 17k ( streched from 15k , please do not suggest to extend more T_T ) 1. Q: Budget? A: 17k 2. Q: Preferred Form Factor(flip, bar, slider)? A: Bar 3. Q: Preferred display type? A: I really don't know the difference between AMOLED and S-LCD and all the terms used by various companies , screen is really important for me , i would like to have the screen best for watching videos. 4. Q: Do you have any brand preference or dislike? Please name them. A: Would like to stick to the more conventional brands , Sony , HTC , Samsung ( although people seems to tell me they are crap ) . NO to Micromax , Karbonn , even LAVA 5. Q: Preferred input method (Touchscreen, QWERTY, etc.)? A: Touchscreen 6. Q: Camera required or not? If required, please specify type like front camera/flash/etc. A: Not much important , but the camera should be satisfactory or better . 7. Q: Preferred operating system? (Android, Symbian, iOS, Windows Phone etc). A: Android. 8. Q: Preferred connectivity options? (3G, Wifi, Edge etc). A: The more the merrier 3G and Wi Fi among the obvious , i have heard about Wi Fi tethering , i'd like to have that , does it count as one of the options ? 9. Q: What is your intended use for this phone(internet, camera, multimedia, mails, etc)? A: Videos , Applications , Internet , Games , Camera .. in that order. 10. Q: Any other requirements? A: Rugged phone. Not like DEFY+ , but i don't care about the looks or size of the phone , more than willing to buy a brick ( what people used to call Nokia earlier ) 11. Q: If you have already considered a phone then please mention the model. A: Xperia Sola Other Options ( Disadvantages ) HTC One V ( Very thin , no removable battery , ICS not an advantage for me , will us an ICS Mod anyways ) Xperia U ( 4 GB ) Ace 2 ( Samsung is not good ? ) Incredible S ( 20+k , Old Model ? ) Neo V ( My previous pick , hoped to pick it up at 14-15 k after new models launched , but seems overpriced now at 17k ) When i say Heavy Duty , i mean a phone which will go down well with extensive tinkering , i tend to install excessive amounts of Apps , i will surely go on to mod the phone , that which voids the warranty ( sorry i am not much acquainted with Android as of now , have been using Symbian ( N73 ME ) for the last 5 years , have installed more than 200 apps on it in that period ) I will not buy from E-Bay.
